Are you supposed to be normal?

June 27, 2012

Dear Madam,

I would be obliged if you would kindly explain to me the meaning of your letter. These are the points which I do not understand: 

1. Who are you? 
2. Where do you come from? 
3. Are you supposed to be normal? 

You will appreciate that without the answers to my questions, I cannot fully understand your letter.

Yours faithfully, 

Harold Pinter

My feet are not normal. Or are they? While most people can walk around with all sorts of sandals (high heeled, flat or whatever), I have to mostly resort to the all time fabulous socks with sandals. And why? Because princess feet here gets pinched and blisters really easily! So silly old me had to walk to work the other day and thought, these are so comfy surely it’ll be OK, right? Wrong. By the time I got to the office a 45 minute walk later my feet were badly blistered and made me sit at my desk all day with my shoes off. (Not that I have a lot of places to go to anyway, working in the sticks). Thankfully Hello Kitty came to the rescue in the shape of some plasters I normally carry in my purse for situations like this and I managed to walk the 10 minute stretch between where the bus drops me off and home without having to do it barefoot. But I must have looked like a moron, walking very…. very slowly, haha.

Anyway, I finally wore the Eiffel tower pajama style pants I found in London recently and I have to say I love them, in all their man repelling glory.

Headband – H&M
Cardigan – Wetseal 
Bow top – Primark
Eiffel Tower Pants – Vintage, from some shop in Brick Lane, London
Watch – Casio
Shoes – Clarks, thrifted.

    Ihh 🙁 Eu sou igual.Qualquer coisinha os meus pés ficam logo com bolhas, feridas e afins, o que é chato, porque adoro sapatos e é super dicícil encontrar uns que não me mutilem os pés. Até ténis me aleijam. I'm definitely not normal!
    Essas calças são um máximo!;)

    Clarks' shoes rubbed you? You must be a princess to have feet so sensitive.
    Love those plasters, I've got a few of those in my bag, too. x

    I've got similar pajama pants and they're the most comfortable thing ever.

    Those are really cute shoes though!

    oh poor you, but you're not alone, my feet are kind of similar too. No matter how much I invest in a pair of shoes, they hurt and ironically the more expensive the worse it hurt. I have more near 50 pairs now and I wear slippers at work :))

    Have a a nice day resting your feet.

    Oh, yes. I know that grin step grin step well. Hello Kitty is a great healer.

    I love how those blasted shoes look but not what they did to your princess footsies!
    And I really enjoyed reading those letters between Harold Pinter and the confused lady. Hilarious!
